    Hi!

    About two years ago, when I was starting my woodworking journey, I wrote this post:

    Paul Sellers and the "spoon tribute"


    At this time I never ever worked or held a #4 hand plane!

    This post is a kind of an update to my progress and some sort of a homage to this on-line woodworking school!
    My only lessons came from this school, and all the posts I get in touch through the web site unpluggedshop.com…

    This bed was made entirely with the famous Record #4 I bought in ebay.co.uk for around 6£, a small wooden plane I modified to be the “scrub plane”, the Aldi brand chisel set, the copying saw, two rasps,the winding sticks (PS version), and I only spend 40€ in rough saw pine wood, and the center rails on the top (head board??) came from my youngest baby bed that I recycled.

    I started with some sketches, and 2 small models, after that I did it.
    And I was able to do it in 2 weeks.
    I sill do mistakes, and gaps here and there (less then a 0,8mm), and some tear out, but it does the job

    So… a BIG THANK YOU Mr Sellers and the entire team!

    Here goes the pictures, enjoy

    Post Scriptum: If I may…. “poor mans long clams” – some cargo straps will do the work 🙂

    Enjoy the learning path...!!

    Glad to see I’m not the only one who uses ratchet straps (cargo straps) for clamps.

    Excellent. Your story parallels mine, although now I think I have three years experience.
    Before Paul I sort of struggled hanging a picture on the wall.

    Very nice bed, design and execution.

    Great work on the bed. I’m impressed that you made it with such a small selection of tools and for such a low cost.

    Excellent

    Philip, thanks for your comment. That means a lot to me!

    But the truth is it all came trough this school, Paul’s blogs and the philosophy behind the 10 tools, 3 joins, and poor mans tools.

    So until I’ll be able to shake Paul’s hand in person send him by best regards. And You to because you are getting better at filming and showing us all the little details and that goes to the rest of the team as well!

    Enjoy the learning path...!!

    I’ve seen some of your work, Antonio, and you do very nice work. That bed is great. And I’ll bet your daughter is thrilled with the doll bed, too – that’s too cool.

    So many of us have learned so much form this online school. I’m so thankful.

    That looks great! I’d love to make a bed and this might just be the inspiration I need, well done indeed.
